The music has a dark haunted quality reminiscent of American Delta Blues and Country music, yet it is produced by an English artist who lived for many years in New York and who now lives in Prague, Czech Republic. PHIL SHÖENFELT’s songs reflect the mythology of the outcast adrift in a hostile landscape who becomes the victim of his own fantasies and paranoia, and whose relationships with others are frequently obsessive and destructive.
The characters who inhabit these songs – the psychopaths, the junkies and O.D. victims, the suicides and tortured lovers – are not typical subjects for the modern pop song, but while they are sometimes difficult to sympathise with, Shöenfelt portrays them with a psychological insight that makes them totally believable (texten är tagen från Phil´s hemsida).
